Burnley have signed Leyton Orient winger George Porter.
The 20-year-old has agreed a three-year contract with the move subject to completion of the relevant paperwork.
The two clubs are also still in negotiation over a fee, with Orient entitled to compensation for the right winger
Porter joined Leyton Orient from non-league side Cray Wanderers on a two week trial in early May 2010. After playing in several reserve games, he was signed by the O's later that month.
In his first season with Orient, the Sidcup-born wideman was loaned to both Lewes and Hastings in order to gain some first team experience. After making over 35 appearance for the O's, Porter rejected a two year contract offer from Leyton Orient in May this year.
Eddie Howe talking about his second signing of the summer said:
'We believe George is an exciting young player with the potential to develop further with us,' said the Burnley manager as he steps up his recruitment drive ahead of Friday's return to pre-season training.
'He will increase competition in the wide areas in our squad but is also one for the future.
'He has had a taste of League football and we will now be working with him to help him make the step up to the Championship and make a big impact here at Turf Moor.'
